Sparks Street Public Realm Plan – Have your say!

What are the most important things for the City to consider to ensure the future success of Sparks Street? Complete this questionnaire and tell the City what you think.

As part of developing the Public Realm Plan, the City and its partners are committed to engaging the public about the future of the iconic public space known as the Sparks Street Pedestrian Mall – how should it be used, what should it look like, and how should it be programmed. The City is reaching out to:

  • residents
  • business owners
  • landowners
  • surrounding community associations
  • government agencies
  • and others who may be interested in sharing their perspectives and ideas on the future of Sparks Street.

Public engagement will conclude early in 2019 with a report to Finance and Economic Development Committee and Council.

The City will post the responses provided on in 2018 and use the responses to inform the development of the Public Realm Plan.
